I have never overclocked before, so I used the asus overclocker utility to overclock my system for me. It left it at 3.6 ghz, but when I was running prime95 afterward, The temps would go up to 90 degrees C, then the clock would go back down to 1.067 ghz for a few seconds, cool off to about 78 degrees C, then repeat. I never would have thought It would get that hot with a coolermaster hyper 212 evo. I just recently replaced my motherboard because my other one crapped out. Thats why I'm overclocking now. I'm not sure if my cooler is just bad, or I put it on wrong. If anyone has any advice or needs more info, I would love to hear about it.
